    I have googled this until my fingers have bled!

    I have recently replaced a crashed laptop with a MacBook Pro (Intel core i7) with OSX Lion 10.7.4, and bought Office 2011.

    My office runs an email server with Microsoft Exchange 2003... I know Iknow... Massive problem... which I am NOW aware of.

    In essence no email client compatible for OSX Lion 10.7.4 can talk to Microsoft Exchange 2003.

    I have tried unsuccessfully, Outlook 2011, Mail 5, Mozilla Thunderbird, DavMail... In all iMap, POP3, Exchange...

    Older clients such as Entourage aren't supported as they are Power PC applications...

    I am currently using Mimecast (an email management system), which is barely making out to be a viable temparary solution.

    My final attempt theory is to install Paralells 7, and run a Windows based client and purely run email through Paralells... but have been advised by more savvy friends to exhaust every other possible solution prior. I feel I was there a week ago...

    I need a solution, and fast...

    Please help.

    It has to be a setting either in your office's setup within Exchange or with a setting you have on your machine. I say this because I am connecting natively to Exchange with Outlook 2011 for Mac and have it syncing with my iPhone and iPad as well and have been for over a year now.

    Does your office require VPN to connect from outside the network?

    Hi Deckyon,

    My mails connect to my iPhone and iPad just fine, just having issues with my MacBook Pro (intel)...

    And with regards to accessing our network for outside of the office, yes, we do require the setting up of a VPN... However I'm struggling to connect even plugged into a hardline at the office.

    The Exchange server you are using, is it 2003? And your Mac running OSX Lion?

    Not to computer expert so please excuse me sounding a bit thick.

    My machines setting have been looked at by our IT guy which I can oversee, however setting on the server I would have no clue on.

    My Mac is Lion.
    Exchange was 2003 up until a few months ago when it was upgraded to the latest. I connected then, and still do now.

    I am not on my Mac now, so I cannot verify the setting screens.

    Well if you do manage to get hold of settings I should check against yours which is working, please post!

    I'm suffering, and not keen on going to buy a second laptop...

    Thanks for the info, there may be hope for me!
